Clinical Supervisor for a small non-profit year-round Special Education School and Medi-Cal Mental Health Clinic.
La Cheim's school programs provides both special education and mental health services to adolescent and latency age children. All students have an IEP issued from a neighboring public school district. Students receive educational and therapeutic clinical services in small, self-contained classrooms. Each classroom's treatment team consists of a special education teacher, clinician, mental health resources specialist, and classroom assistant. Additionally highly trained Psychiatrists, RNs, and NPs assist each treatment team in developing a quality, thorough, treatment plans for each child.
Each classroom's therapeutic milieu provides individual and group therapy for the participating students. Classroom's student sizes are small, averaging between 5 to 7 students. Overall campus student census ranges from 12 to 18 students. This allows our treatment plans to be very specific for each student's individualized clinical and educational treatment needs.
Our school provides year-round educational and mental health services. Family therapy is a key component to successful client treatment. A child cannot be successfully served unless their family, extended family, and other outside care givers are involved.
La Cheim has a very dedicated treatment team. Staff turnover is quite low; most employees have been with La Cheim well over 15 years. This can be attributed to a positive sense of professional comradery, quality service provision, satisfaction and a very friendly working environment. This sorts of commitment by employees is fairly unique. Our staff dedication allows for consistent high quality treatment interventions.
This is La Cheim's 5th decade of providing continuous, service to children from our community. Come celebrate life, "La Cheim", and become a member of our treatment team!
